Skaneateles Artisans Presents

 

“Join us on December 15th at 5:30 for refreshments and a demonstration by Julie Fritz of the Oil & Cold Wax Technique that she uses to create abstract landscape paintings of the Finger Lakes.”

Artist Julie Fritz - Oil & Cold Wax Painting
I strive to capture the expanse and the depth  of the landscape, applying more than 20 layers of  transparent oil and cold wax on framed birch  board, then scrape back to all that brings these hills
and lakes alive.

The horizon is my starting point, but I always include water wherever I can find it, and then I apply texture to acknowledge the ruggedness of our earth.

I try to price my works reasonably so they can go out into the community and tell their story.

Artist Amanda Taylor - Glass

“My work explores the expressive possibilities of glass through variation in color, texture, light, and atmosphere. By drawing inspiration from nature, I use my glass work to creatively interpret the ever-present beauty that sounds us all. I use light, color, and form to create a sense of place in my work. My hope is that the work will spark a fond memory, and bring a sense of wonder and joy within each viewer.


Working out of either of her studio’s (one just north of Asheville, NC in the Cattail Creek
community, and the other in Batavia, NY), Amanda Taylor creates various bodies of work that celebrate the natural beauty of the hills and mountains where she has lived and travelled throughout Canada, the United State, and various areas around the world.

Amanda’s work varies in size, subject matter, and techniques. She works from her own
photographs and/or watercolor paintings to create all her landscape series. There is no use of any enamels or paints in her work. Layers of imagery are created by using various forms of glass materials. Each piece is then fired several times in a glass kiln to get the final sculptural piece. Amanda Taylor was born and raised close to the Canadian Rockies in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. Her love of the outdoors, and photography, inspires her to create unique interpretations in kilnformed glass.

Amanda has been working with different forms of art materials and techniques since her late teens. She has been working primarily with kilnformed glass since 1994, but has been solely focused on glass since 2007, and over the years has studied and been mentored by many glass artists from around the world. Since 2008, her and her husband, Lance Taylor, run a teaching glass school and studio in Batavia, NY. They both teach year-round at the school in Batavia, and in various studios in Canada and the USA.

“I can’t remember a time when I wasn’t sure art would be the focus of my life.  It amazes me that artists can communicate to the world in a universal language of color, shape and value, it is magical. Regardless of style, media, technique or subject, the process is the same, a transfer of emotion from creator to viewer.”


“In my art the relationship between nature, man and time weave an underlying theme.  My style, medium and subject vary in relationship to the idea I want to express.  My art is a visual diary of my life.  I don’t always look for my subjects; but I know when I see them.”


“Most of my work is done in acrylic, oil or watercolor, I find that each of these mediums has a characteristic that is unique.  The subject will often dictate which media I choose.  Besides media, a subject can also influence the painting style.  My style varies from loose or painterly like impressionism to tight or detailed like a sharp focus photograph.  Most of my subject matter is derived from the landscape of Northern New York and also from travels to Maine, the southeast and out west.”


John’s work has been seen in several publications over the years including Artist’s Magazine, New York Conservationist and Readers Digest.  Since retiring from teaching art in 2003, John has been devoting his time to producing and promoting his art.

Mary Gardners

Gardner says of this collection:  “Over the years, we become conversant with the  idea of place As something specific and separate from a larger space.  The same can be said of our inner world and of our real or imagined experience in the outer world.  I try to make these perceptions come alive in my poetry.” 

Mary Gardner’s poems have won international, national and regional awards and have appeared in several anthologies and the Syracuse Poster Project.  Her book, MY LIFE MATTERS, encourages others to write about their lives.  Her earlier chapbook, When All Danger of Frost Is Past, was published by FootHills in 2015.  She holds a Certificate in Poetry from the YMCA

Kathy Erickson

 

Meet Master Pine Needle Artist Kathryn Hendricks Erickson Saturday July 15th from 10 AM to 3 PM.

Kathryn Hendricks Erickson, who grew up in Jordan, NY, returns to our area to demonstrate the old fine craft of pine needle coiling to create unusual baskets. After retiring from teaching in Punta Gorda, FL, she began pine needle basket making as a hobby but soon found a full time venture. Her designs and innovative construction have taken this folk art of Florida and the Carolinas to a fine craft level. Her pieces have been awarded many ribbons and awards throughout Florida and her baskets have been shown in many fine art exhibitions in several other states.  They are also on display in three different fine art galleries.  Kathryn's baskets include unusual stone bases, fine beads, and Muhly Grass , similar to sweet grass which she grows and harvests. Come see her demonstrating, chat about her goat herd, and view and purchase a selection of new baskets one day only at SKANEATELES ARTISANS, 3 Fennel Street- Lower Level,  Saturday July 15th from  10 AM - 3 PM.
